All That Glitters …

All that glitters is not gold. But gold does glitter and reflects light brilliantly. I’ve collected digital images of golden surfaces and used some as backgrounds for these abstract designs. Keeping to a limited palette of black and various reds, the circles, lines and geometric shapes float over and blend with the shimmering golden light behind. All of the designs were created digitally in Procreate app for iPad.

    1. Thanks Ruth. I’ve collected several jpegs of gold surfaces just for this purpose. I used some in earlier postings. Take a look at “Abstract ideas” from May 2019 and “Emblematic Abstracts” from March of 2019 to see other uses of the gold surfaces.
